Review

NATIONAL BESTSELLER
WINNER OF THE COMMONWEALTH WRITER'S PRIZE FOR BEST BOOK (Eurasia)


"Dazzling--a wonderfully imagined and abundant novel about love and rock 'n' roll, about India and the United States, about gods and mortals, and about this crazy world we live in. Sheer joy." M.G. Vassanji, The Globe and Mail

“Lusty, sprawling, acid-high. With it, Rushdie enters a new rawness, a different madhouse, America.” The Washington Post

"This is Rushdie at his absolute, almost insolently global best--his adroit mastery of language serves brilliantly imagined characters and a mesmerizing narrative. Completely seductive." Toni Morrison

"Brilliant...unabashedly ambitious." Toronto Star

"From start to finish, this massive novel is in every way major.... The writing is funny, silly, erudite, crude, precise, unbuttoned. The fabulous and magical mix with the sordid and the profane.... Daring.... Extraordinary." The Gazette (Montreal)

From the Back Cover

"Dazzling--a wonderfully imagined and abundant novel about love and rock 'n' roll, about India and the United States, about gods and mortals, and about this crazy world we live in.-- Sheer joy." -M.G. Vassanji, The Globe and Mail
"As absorbing as fiction can be -- and [from] one of our continent's best writers." -Kirkus Reviews
"This is Rushdie at his absolute, almost insolently global best -- his adroit mastery of language serves brilliantly imagined characters and a mesmerizing narrative. Completely seductive." -Toni Morrison
"[An] exuberant and elegiac new novel...his best since Midnight's Children." -The New York Times
"Brilliant...unabashedly ambitious, playful, arch." -The Toronto Star
"From start to finish, this massive novel is in every way major.--The writing is funny, silly, erudite, crude, precise, unbuttoned.--The fabulous and magical mix with the sordid and the profane; [the] plot is invariably advanced by catastrophe -- bizarre deaths and unexplained fires, multiple earthquakes.--Daring-- Extraordinary." -The Montreal Gazette
"Magnificent, monstrously inventive--The most playful of masterpieces." -Mirabella
"Salman Rushdie's new novel is a wonderful storytelling beast that feeds on pop culture, misfit history and the persistence of myth. Rushdie's epic range has never been more impressive. Here is a great novelist operating as a master of metamorphosis -- transforming life, art and language in the subterranean maze of his imagination." -Don DeLillo
